"Gandalf… if what you say is true, the world is in grave danger." He's back! Peter Jackson has released the 11th production video blog for The Hobbit, this one focusing almost entirely on The Desolation of Smaug (the second movie) as well as the reshoots and current work happening down in New Zealand. In addition to yet another fantastic behind-the-scenes look, it starts with Peter unfortunately confirming that there will be nothing to show of The Hobbit at Comic-Con this year. The big reason? Everyone is working, even Jackson himself can't make it, and he couldn't get any actors either. He's apparently "so busy shooting" he can't even cut a sizzle reel. So no footage or anything, but we do get another exciting video to tide us over.

Here's the eleventh video blog for Peter Jackson's The Hobbit (The Desolation of Smaug) via Facebook:

In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit… J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit, being directed by Peter Jackson as three separate movies, is set in Middle-Earth 60 years before Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, which Jackson and his filmmaking team brought to the big screen in a trilogy ten years ago. The films, with screenplays by Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens, Guillermo del Toro and Peter Jackson, were shot consecutively in digital 3D using the latest cameras. The Hobbit follows the journey of Bilbo Baggins, played by Martin Freeman, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor, which was long ago conquered by the dragon Smaug. The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug lands in theaters in 3D & 48FPS on December 13th.

    Kinda better that way. There's alway mad crazy BO from people who don't use deodorant at these types of convention. Sometimes the hygiene is worse than any sports locker room. Please if any of you guys go, use that old spice! Anyway, sad to not see Peter go, it's my first comic con in 3 yrs of absence. I was looking forward to it.
